This work was commissioned by Howard Snell and the Wren Orchestra of London, with funds provided by the Arts Council of Great Britain. It was written for, and is dedicated to, James Watson.

It is the last in a series of brass concerti which the composer first started in 1970 with his Horn Concerto, written for Ifor James. Since then he has completed a Tuba Concerto (1976, for John Fletcher), a Trombone Concerto (1979, for Michael Hext) and finally the Trumpet Concerto (1983).
